adidas Consortium Tour: Footpatrol EQT Running Cushion 93
Launch 30th April

After visits to New York, San Francisco, and Berlin the fourth destination on the Consortium Tour 2016 is London. Deep in the streets of Soho lies Footpatrol, the first place any sneaker enthusiast should hit up when visiting the city.
When it comes to exclusive runs or high-concept collaborations, Footpatrol is the spot in the capital. The narrow, wood- paneled store is the beating heart of London’s sneaker community. The place sneaker-heads meet, the store you call in the days preceding that release, the spot where you might find a model you had forgotten you were even looking for.

For this collaboration, Footpatrol nods to adidas’ history of London inspired footwear. Its EQT Running Cushion 93 is designed with a color palette and detailing reminiscent of the legendary adidas London runner.
Now for a bit of history. The Equipment line was first launched in the early 90s. adidas’ aim was to take things back to basics, to focus on pure performance; to make a running shoe that really worked for runners. By 1993, the Equipment line had various footwear models designed to cater to every type of runner: the Support for supinators; the Guidance for pronators; the stripped-back Racer, and the Cushion, a more supportive model designed to offer all-round comfort.

23 years later, running and running models have evolved, but adidas’ attitude towards performance footwear remains unchanged. The EQT Cushion model has enjoyed a renaissance with a modern generation of sneaker wearers. Nowadays, it speaks to those who like to keep it basic and prefer to keep things understated.

video by The others Tv

Our store in Barcelona, will release on April 23rd with le coq sportif the ECLAT ROSE FRIENDS & FAMILY, a premium and limited edition of the ECLAT, the legendary model of the French firm. These exclusive sneakers are a continuation of the ECLAT ROSE EXD, that were launched in 2014. Again, they pay tribute to the rose, one of the most representative flowers of Barcelona. It is for this reason that the truly symbolic Saint Jordi has been chosen as the release date, as it is thought of the day when roses are the main protagonists. Both le coq sportif and limitEDitions will launch this special edition to reward their most loyal customers and fans, hence its name Friends & Family.

The ECLAT ROSE FRIENDS & FAMILY, following its predecessor, is once again made with waterproof Premium Nubuck, simulating the effect of dewdrops on the rose petals. However, this time, the shoe is crafted in an elegant burgundy color. Embroidered at the back of the shoe you will find a burgundy rose and the green leaf limitEDitions logo. The packaging follows the sneakers premium line and is presented in a carved wooden box for a vintage look, each one of them numbered as part of the limited edition.

The entire set results in a unique and original pair of sneakers, true to the sport-chic essence of the French brand. The collaboration between le coq sportif and limitEDitions beautifully comes together paying a tribute to the rose again, and to a very special Saint Jordi Day.

NikeLab Dunk Lux x Undefeated SP
Launch 21st April

We don’t need to remind you that California’s own Undefeated always brings some heat in the collaborative department. This upcoming Nike Dunk Lux continues their tradition of historic Dunk designs, with unabashed branding on the quarter as well as the tongue for the boldest take on the Nike logo yet.

The pair swaps out traditional branding for a late-80’s era ‘Just Do It’ patch on the tongue in a stark black and white. The side panels each feature ‘Nike’ and ‘1985’ underneath the vibrant pop of the reddish-pink Swoosh.

New Balance X Concepts “City Rivalry” Pack
Launch 16th April

The 2016 MLB Season is officially underway and New Balance, already a big presence on the baseball diamond, is kicking things off with sneaker boutique Concepts for a collaboration that is as pure baseball as anything else. Inspired by the rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, Concepts, which boasts locations in both cities, presents the “City Rivalry” with the 997 (NY) and the 998 (Boston). The NY pair takes a landmark approach with the statue of liberty green and insoles inspired by Cracker Jacks, while the Boston version takes on a rust red and dull green – a familiar color-combo seen on Boston’s famous Yawkey Way. Full release info for the shoes is detailed just below, so get a detailed look at the Concepts x New Balance “City Rivalry” Pack below and stay tuned for the official release.

Asics Gel-Lyte “Okayama Denim Pack”
Launch 15th April

Dressed in premium Okayama denim. Last year the brand released a similar pack, but chose to feature two Gel Lyte III silhouettes. This year, they have opted for a slighter different design and stamped the denim inspired look on both the Gel Lyte V and Gel Lyte III model. Both pairs feature a similar design with an Indian Ink colourway utilised for the denim on the upper. It's compliment by polka dot detailing and black laces. Both sit on white midsole and include the customary Gel Lyte technology underfoot.

The Gel Lyte V opts for a darker palette and includes denim to the lateral sides, rear and toe box.

The Gel Lyte III features the addition of cream, suede overlays giving that premium finish to an already stand-out pair.

Nike Free Huarache Carnivore SP
Launch 14th April

One of the strangest “hybrid” sneakers in recent memory is making a return this month in two colorways. The Free Huarache Carnivore was introduced as a NikeLab select release, with inspiration coming from the Air Huarache and the Air Carnivore basketball shoe. The remarkable thing about the Free Huarache Carnivore is that while the shoe is a hybrid, it’s a completely new design rather than a frankenstein of existing ones.

adidas Consortium x HIGHSNOBIETY UltraBOOST & Campus 80s
Launch 9th April

Launched in 2005, Berlin/NYC-based online platform HIGHSNOBIETY has become a global authority on style, streetwear and sportswear. Over the past decade, these design disciplines have clashed and collided, influenced, intertwined and gradually blurred into one another. HIGHSNOBIETY has documented these developments, offering them incredible vantage to contribute their take on two highly popular styles in the Consortium series.

UltraBOOST was designed for distance running. Unveiled in 2015, the fusion of lightweight adidas Primeknit and BOOST™ technology earned it acclaim among the athletic community. Over the past year UltraBOOST has maneuvered into the realm of the more stylistically-inclined sneaker-wearer. A shoe initially conceived for performance and comfort but when iterated in understated lavender grey, emphasis subtly shifts towards the model’s aesthetic elements. HIGHSNOBIETY has given the sneaker a soft taupe knitted upper with a matching real leather cage, a luxury model that allows UltraBOOST to stray from its athletic roots.

Adidas Consortium Campus 80’s x Highsnobiety

The Campus was built for NBA hardwood. Worn on courts through the 1970s, the Campus survived an era when basketball was a more violent, less vigilantly refereed sport. It enjoyed an illustrious post-NBA career in Hip Hop and later life as a fully-fledge lifestyle shoe. The Campus 80s encapsulates the potential for evolution within the lifespan of a sneaker, originally constructed in suede, this model features a never-seen-before glove leather upper and contrasting butter soft tan leather lining.
